Good question. Unfortunately, no such list exists. Here are some relevant requirements though:
- An E-2 investor must demonstrate the ability to develop and direct the business through previous business experience and/or education. Thus, an investor who hasn’t run a business or does not have substantial work experience may face hurdles obtaining an E-2 visa.
- Are you from a country that has E-2 treaty reciprocity? The most notable countries that don’t include: India, Russia, and Brazil.
- It must be a type of business that will sustain itself. If you fail to prove that your company will create growth, in terms of capital and employment then you’ll have a hard time obtaining an E-2.
